Integrated Activity-Based Costing (ABC) fully integrates the Activity-Based Costing component (CO-OM-ABC) in the value flow of the Controlling component (CO), in particular the Product Cost Controlling component (CO-PC) and the Profitability Analysis component (CO-PA). Integrated ABC posts costs and quantities as real values, not statistical ones, to the participating objects.
